This episode of The Kriya Yoga Podcast is an excerpt from the 2021 Kriya Yoga Solstice Online Retreat.  David McGrath is our presenter.

Yoga  is the science of consciousness. It is a philosophy, a psychology and a practice. Yoga offers a systematic means to understanding the  fundamental nature of reality and our relationship to it.
